so my problem is, what not working balance. then I press test, the sound must come from left to right ear, but it comes from both always, even I do all volume on right ear it anyway plays on both sides.
Even I uninstall driver, on default win7 driver remains same problem.
I tried to use earbuds, another headphones still same.
Tried to change any settings not worked
